. they did try to get the repeal of massachusetts health reform on to the ballot for a statewide vote. and it works in massachusetts like it does in every state. you need to get your ballot language approved by the state, then you need to get a certain number of signatures, but if you clear that number of signatures and it turns out enough of those signatures are real people, then your repeal thing goes on the ballot and people get to vote on whether or not to repeal that law. the repeal romney care folks never got to the end of that process, because they got distracted. see, the whole effort to repeal health reform in massachusetts seems to have actually been kind of a pet project, maybe a side interest, for one single anti-abortion group in that state. and even though the group said they really wanted to repeal romney care and they got the repeal romney care url and they got the website up and everything, they ended up losing interest. i think, because massachusetts decided that they were going to consider a doctor-assisted suicide measure, and that excited the anti-abortion people

in the direction of massachusetts, where governor mitt romney, back in 2006, rolled out something that's very very similar to this. of course, it's way, way smaller in massachusetts, because you're just dealing with one state. but nonetheless, the whole of obamacare, as we saw in the election last year, is based on what mitt romney did, and that's one of the things that caused him so much problem in the campaign. in massachusetts, at the end of the first month, how many people do you think signed up? it was 123, so it's not very many at all. at the end of the first year, when it became clear to everybody in massachusetts that you have to sign up for healthcare, 36,000 had signed up. but the really interesting figure up in massachusetts is the 36,000, so one fifth of that number signed up at the 11th hour. almost to the last minute of the 11th month. and so that's what the white house is going to say today. that there's time. it has happened before. and it will probably happen this way. but it will be interesting to see what these changes will be from president obama. and i think when you have the

to and even then at the very last minute. under romney-care in massachusetts, in many ways, this was the template of the affordable care act. this is where things stood after one month, 123 people have seened up. granted, it is one state, there are 34 states using the federal obama care website. that's about one-third of 1%. after otwo months in massachusetts, just 2,300 people have enrolled. it was only after 11 months under the threat of a penalty about to be imposed that more than 36,000 people in massachusetts would go on to enroll. most of them didn't enroll until that 11-month mark. so obama care can work. it won't kick in until the end of next march, five months from now. getting it to work depends on getting the problems ironed out and getting americans of all ages signed up. the obama administration needs to straighten out the political mess it's created. it's not just one future cabinet secretary at stake. this is the fate of the democratic party and beyond it is tied to whether obama care succeeds. the short term, that means getting the website fixed. in the long
